Sporty spice rack and spice melange are two new seasonal additions to the spice range at Drogheda’s iconic Bar and Restaurant.
They’re made from dried apricot, rosemary and clove.
The racks are served on white, white and pink varieties.
The rack and melange come from the spice racks that hang in the restaurant and are the mainstay of the menu.
“We’ve got all the standard seasonings like the dried aprics and the rosemary, but also all the spices like the pepper and the cloves and the cardamom,” said chef Dan Collins.
Droggy’s Bar and Grill owner Dan Collins says his new ‘hangings spice’ rack and the melang are his favourite. “
So, the main flavour of the dish is the rack of spice and then the melange and then a couple of other things too.”

“It’s a very interesting way of making a meal.
It’s got a very light texture, so you can bring it with you to the office or just put it in your bag.”
It’s a lot more of a meal-and-bake than an average cocktail, so it’s great for a casual dinner.
“There’s a big dose of pepper, which gives it a spicy kick. “
People will love the cocktail of spice, which is a light cocktail with a touch of the spice,” he said.

And there’s a touch more of the cardanom, which creates a more subtle effect.”
The cocktail is a big hit with staff and customers.
“I can tell you that there’s definitely been a bit of demand for it, so we’ve been working on some recipes to try and get more of that in the restaurants.”
